As I mentioned in other threads, I am a failed music major trying to use bass to reconnect with music 25 years later. I love playing bass, but I find myself flashbacking to the hours spent at the music center in college utterly failing at every ear training exercise. I think I just downright suck at it. I have been at it for four weeks doing interval training with various apps. I started at 2/30 correct. Four weeks later I moved up to 3/30 correct on the first attempt. Is there a biological component to this? I can only hear 4 and 5s ...and not even on the first try always. This is so frustrating. The reason I dropped my music major in college was because I would spend hours and hours using an ear training program, and after 6 months, was not appreciably better, and failing all my tests. Intervals were guesswork at best and chords were just impossible. Now I find myself repeating this, and I am just getting angry and frustrated. What is the secret to this? I can memorize notes, scales, modes, patterns......but I can’t friggen HEAR intervals. I sometimes try and “play by ear”...but its an exercise in futility. I always wind up having to go to a chart/tab. Sorry for the rant.....but this is making me want to give up again.
